“Cried,” penned by major influence Jazmine Sullivan, follows “I Am Beautiful,” Glover’s fine Idol coronation single that stalled on the charts. As we previously noted, “Cried” places her firmly in the retro-soul category, making her an easy fit for R&B radio but not so much for urban radio as a whole. But the video may also remind of the nature of Glover’s Idol victory, of how she auditioned for three years in a row and then seemed the most determined to win.
